Description

"If you thought Central Otago was all about bright Fruit-driven Pinot, then get this in your glass. This biodynamic vineyard overlooking Cromwell has produced a mellow, savoury and nuanced expression with the most beautifully handled tannins of the vintage- they are mouth coating yet provide structure in combination with the fresh acidity. Drinking window 2020-2030" Rebecca Gibb, Master of Wine, Decanter Magazine

Bright lifted red fruit notes complement darker savoury earth tones along with spice, a touch of chocolate and subtle blood orange nuances. The palate is generous and complex, focused throughout by a mineral freshness and energy, and supported by lovely acidity with persistence of fine textural tannins. A wine that will continue to gain complexity, and a we expect a cellaring potential of 10+ years.

This vintage experienced a mild winter, and after an initially dry spring, a good amount of rain followed. An early bud-burst was followed by cooler periods, aside from brief heat spikes in November. Windy conditions started in November. December was relatively cool, and flowering a little patchy. In January winemakers experienced lower than average growing degree days and above average rainfall. Cool, mild conditions prevailed through to mid-February, with nights often dipping below 10 degrees Celsius. Wind continued to be a challenge throughout the season and vine canopies were quite low in vigour. By late February the temperatures lifted and veraison went well. Crops were low due to the flowering conditions, however ripening progressed well, with harvest commencing in late March.
